tested as per the JSQR and their User trial is
awaited.                                          its implementation. Army is in the process of
NBC First Aid Kit Mk-II (Type A & Type B)         trials under the aegis of HQ IDS (Med) and
                                                  induction is likely to begin after successful
    NBC First Aid Kit Mk-II Type A & Type         trials.

management of causalities of NBC warfare          Flame retardant Anti G Suit
and has cleared user trial. Joint Services
